Kerry, I can take a look at the logs if you want to send them this way.
Please provide correct labels, such as receiver name and what state just for
curiosity? Yes, you will need to install driver and install GPSView. Better
to copy GPSView to Desktop or other local easy to find location. Yes, I
think that this is very worth it, getting TTFF in 5s instead of 30s and SBAS
in much less than is great! Click on Update and no GPS  connection required,
just Internet.

Subject: [Loadstone] iblue receivers questions


I have been a loadstone user since December 2006 however the answers to the
following questions still escape me.


Firstly, I notice a 10 meter or so difference between a sedio 2010 and a
globalsat bt338 verses the sedio 2110.

Anyone else seen this? Anyone want to crunch some logs if I can provide
them? points made on the globalsat and the 2010 are 10 meters out when
viewed on other receivers I have the sedio 2110, a deluo datalogger using
mtk chipset and an iblue 737a+ and 747a+.



I have 3 iblue receivers, 2 737a+ units and a 747 datalogger.

Manual claims you can load differential data to the receiver to shorten time
to first fix.

Is this worth doing? I assume it is done by using gpsview and hitting query
update although not sure which buttons to hit in what order.

Does gps have to have a fix for this to work? This is possible I can take a
netbook outside and have a fix and get access to the net.


Should loadstone show any difference i.e. differential fix, and is uploading
ephemeris data even worth the time?


Iblue receivers seem to show more satelites more often however they don't
seem to hold on as long as the SiRf3 units I have if they loose a signal
it's just gone so you often oscillate between no signal and a fix rapidly at
times. Anyone else seen this?


Any other hints on the inblue receivers welcome.

Not sure if I have just done my money on receivers that aren't cool or
whether the agps is worth having.

Regards, Kerry.
